Oolong teas are like cousins. They may have the same name but each offers a different pleasure. The taste can range from clear, bright and flowery to heavy and charcoal-flavored depending upon their origin and processing. Oolong teas are withered in the sun, partially fermented, and sold as loose leaves or curled and rolled into small balls called “gunpowder.” The degree of fermentation varies between 8% and 85% which gives “Formosa oolong teas” a large range of aromatic varieties from a sweet and fruity honey aroma to a green / fresh bouquet flavor. Oolong #17 from Siamteas.com is light, fragrant yet very satisfying. You might enjoy it before meditation for clarity of vision while reducing stress, a cool fresh evening on a high mountain.
This clear, pale oolong is a new taste experience for me–delightfully light, fresh, flowery, and uplifting, not my usual bitter and bracing Twinings gunpowder green tea I normally use to jolt myself awake each morning. This #17 oolong from the mountains of northern Thailand is more like a morning walk through a spring garden.
I’m glad to have gotten some more Shan Tee,Pending on how ya steep this one you can enjoy a few different flavor profiles, short steeps is more greenish kinda floral goodness and longer steeps gives ya more of a raw puerh kinda oolongish yummyness, I do so enjoy this tea. All the teas that i’ve had from Siam Tee Shop have been very nice i’m surprised more folks on here haven’t had any to review on here, if you enjoy raw puerhs, green teas or oolongs you should for sure try this one. also Please read about Project Shan Tee here http://siamteas.com/?page_id=501 :)
